5 MORE things you didn’t know about the Evie Cappelli series

Micha is demi-pan. I know I listed him as being just pansexual in my last round up of things you didn't know, but the more I write his character, the more I realized he was on the asexual spectrum, and that gender is pretty meaningless to him, in terms of attraction. While the first draft… Continue reading 5 MORE things you didn’t know about the Evie Cappelli series

Things to do while waiting for #Pitchwars or Query responses

1. Work on your next book. You're not planning to rest on your laurels, are you? 2. Send out another round of queries. Obviously, this doesn't apply to Pitchwars, since that's against the rules, but I recommend sending out multiple queries at once. I usually batch mine in groups of 3-5. It takes about 30… Continue reading Things to do while waiting for #Pitchwars or Query responses

A Hard Thing

I know this isn't one of my regular blog update days. But I didn't think this could wait. As you all know, we recently became a single-income household--not by choice. We've been doing what we can to rectify the situation, but it hasn't been enough. Right now, we're about $400 short of being able to… Continue reading A Hard Thing

The Frankenputer lives!

This week has taken a huge load off my shoulders. The wedding dress went off to the bride on Friday, and on Saturday Ash and I attended the Mid Ohio Indie Author Book fair. It was a lot of fun, particularly when a little girl saw Ash's sign for drawings-on-demand and asked how much it… Continue reading The Frankenputer lives!

Pass, Fail, Promise: Urban Fantasy Edition

I have been doing a TON of reading. Seriously. I think I've finished 4-5 books since Saturday, and I'm working on three more. Right now I'm on a huge Urban Fantasy kick. This might be because THE FERRYMEN is coming out in few weeks. Or maybe it's because one of my favorite authors has a… Continue reading Pass, Fail, Promise: Urban Fantasy Edition

Q&A: The Ferrymen

When is this book coming out?  September 5, 2017. What is this book even about? THIS IS BOOK 2 IN THE EVIE CAPPELLI SERIES. Nearly a year after her failed suicide attempt, Evie Cappelli is still seeing ghosts. That’s okay, though. It’s landed her a high paying—but not glamorous—job in supernatural law enforcement with the… Continue reading Q&A: The Ferrymen
